|All living life learns to communicate through trial and error, puppies and dogs are no exception.|
Dogs understand more than we know. Fox News Insider reports, research is proving dogs understand more then we know. The response depends on how we communicate in what tones we use. The report revealed the more uplifting and positive the tone, more the dogs would respond to the trainer.
I have had dogs all my life, and personally more than 20 years. I have learned over the years how I speak to my dog does make a difference. Also, positive training is the only method that insures the dogs will obey and listen to a command when needed. Even if my dog has my shoe in harms way of being chewed, I am more successful asking for the shoe in a cheerful and respectful tone and praising my dog when he or she give me the shoe, regardless if the shoes has been chewed.
Now, if my dog refuses to give me back say the shoe, I take the shoes away and smack the shoe once or twice saying bad shoe. I have found most of the time the dog will not take the same item. Sometimes, the process has to happen a few times depending on the dog's age. Yet, I find punishing the item that the puppy or dog is chewing on is more effective than punishing the dog, no matter how old the dog or puppy.
We are all animals. Every animal has a way to communicate and understand the world. Dogs go out of there way to learn the multiple languages we have as humans. A responsible pet parent knows the importance of learning how to communicate with the dog as well.
Even if the dog does not know every word that is spoken, he or she understand you from the tones and body movements that are attached to the words.
My motto is to communicate how I wish to be spoken too as well as treated. As they say we attract more bees with honey than vinegar. Just the same as us humans, we get the dogs attention with a loving and positive tones versus negative ones.
